Default Bad Nintendo Games

yo so I saw the Metroid Samus Returns thread got a little spicey (actually it was just one dude being silly) and I thought it'd be a good idea to make a thread of Bad Nintendo Games.

So let's talk about all the games Nintendo got wrong which surely can't be many?

I will begin by saying that Metroid Samus Returns suuuuucks, it really sucks a whole heck of a lot

I encourage you all to be deeply personal in your arguments and attacks. (not really, be cool)

breath of the wild sucks too lmao j/k except i'm serious, nah i'm joking (i'm not)

every Mario sports game that isn't on GBC/GBA or isn't Mario Football Strikers Charged or whatever it was called - pile of shit.

Gumshoe is about as good as actual gum on your shoe.

Breath of the wild is super cool, I'm just not sure it deserves all the effusive praise it gets over other games.

No, they are all perfect! Easy mistake, no shame.
And now I will walk away and assume the thread is over.

Mind you, I actually kinda like this game, but being honest about archiving the list of Nintendo games that ain't quite up to snuff:

Also what the fuck is even Ice Climbers? It's so sloppy and irritating. (Popeye and Balloon Fight are aces tho)

Many of the black label NES games weren't fantastic, in my humble opinion. The most egregious offender was "The Original" Mario Bros., with its compressed, simply animated sprites. The game was developed BY Nintendo. You would expect it to be better than anything that had come before it, and yet it misses the mark in so many ways... a bitter reminder that the NES of 1985 was closer to the ColecoVision and 5200 in overall power than the MMC-enhanced NES of 1989, which was the experience most of us remember from our youths.

Nintendo did release a better version of Mario Bros. years later (with a ramen tie-in, oddly), but by then, only turbo-nerds like myself cared. And it still wasn't arcade perfect, although it was closer to the real thing than that Mario Bros. game they kept packaging with Super Mario Advance and its sequels.

Radar Scope. It was a bland Galaxian-like that nobody wanted and the only way Nintendo could sell the cabinets was by converting them into Donkey Kong.

Also Yoshi (the puzzle game) was not that good.

Everything that is Star Fox that is not called "Star Fox 64". Fight me.

Breath of the Wild is not bad but incredibly overrated.

Super Mario Sunshine. Mmmm...taste that spice.

And while not objectively bad, I've always had a great dislike for Majora's Mask.

JP, you can try to lead this horse to Clu Clu Land but good luck getting me to drink.

To be fair, the game really opens up after 120 hours.

Nah, you are pretty right, though I always will have a soft spot for the SNES original (that music!). Every day that goes by without them doing a faithful remake of the first game is a little bit of a waste.

Mario Tennis on the N64 is still my favorite Mario sports game. :-/

Because this is a madhair thread, I feel this is appropriate:

Super Mario Dungshite

Also, does Kirby's Dream Land 3 count as Nintendo for the purposes of this discussion? Because that game is brutal.

Mario Kart Double Dash, for raising the bar on combat so high and taking the wind out of heavy cars.
True story: one time in Time Trials I picked a car that had 5 star max speed, the Bowser Tank, and compared it's top speed on the Luigi raceway to a car that had one star max speed, the Goo-Goo Buggy or something. The buggy was only 2 mph slower, but it had perfect everything else.

Super Mario Sunshine? More like Super WARIO Sunshine!
